For producer Atul Agnihotri, it was a major call to work with 'almost' newcomers after earning a blockbuster with Salman Khan's BODYGUARD. After all, in an industry which is obsessed with 100 crore hits, the obvious temptation was to roll into a big money game all over again. However, instead of delving over the kind of subject matter that warranted such returns, Atul decided to bring in a different approach. He took a leap of faith and instead decided to go ahead with a film that promised good entertainment, than bankroll another project that necessitated the need of a superstar.

"Every film dictates its own star cast. For O TERI, it made sense to have youngsters who were not too exposed to the audience. On the other hand it was also imperative that they were likeable and suited the kind of zany narrative that O TERI promised. With the kind of special bond that Salman shares with Pulkit Samrat (the BITTOO BOSS/FUKREY actor also had an impressive cameo to enact in JAI HO) and newcomer Bilal Amrohi being close to the Khan household as well, the principle cast was well in place," informs a source close to the makers.

Touted as a roller coaster ride that revolves around two reporters, a major political scam and a dead body no less, O TERI was just introduced to audience when its theatrical promo was attached to JAI HO. With good reactions so far to the funny and fast paced narrative that O TERI promises, Atul is happy that his film is being spoken about for all the right reasons.

"It is always a good sign when the film turns out exactly the way you wanted it to," says Atul who entrusted first time director Umesh Bist to be in charge of affairs, "The idea was to create a very good visibility for O TERI and then let audience word of mouth spread further. BODYGUARD was an action-romantic-musical and now O TERI is a zany roller coaster fun comedy. As a producer, every film is special."
